The Lamb

Children feeding lamb

"Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, wooly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?"

"Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb:
He is meek, and he is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
Little Lamb, God bless thee!"


^ Poem "The Lamb" was written by English poet William Blake in contrast to his poem "The Tyger" and published in the collection "Songs of Innocence and of Experience" in 1789.

* Painting "My Pet Lamb" by German artist Rudolf Epp (1834 – 1910).

We are wonderfully created. And everyone is unique. Everyone is important. We are richly gifted in different ways.

This little lamb has everything perfectly suited to its mild nature. Bright, wooly clothing, tender voice, food and also life. The same God cares about us too. But do we always remember about that Who created us?

Appreciating all creations under the heavens we can find our own destination. Even little acts of kindness can reflect the immense beauty of the Universe.

Dear Reader, may "God bless thee..." on your way!
